Celebrating Our 5 Star Award At RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2023


Designed by Will Williams, our display at our 29th appearance at RHS Chelsea Flower Show wowed visitors and judges alike, winning a 5 Star Award, with a beautiful garden showcasing an exciting take on outdoor living. The impressive custom-made oak pavilion, constructed by Oli Carter, housed our elegant oak armchairs and sofa from our ’Splash’ collection alongside a smart dining area featuring our tailored Chelsea Mead Dining Table adorned with delicate and refined arrangements from our show florist Leanne from Wildstone Floral and stylish tableware curated and styled by Lamb and Newt.

Press Day Highlights

Press Day saw Rob Penn and Lord Benyon reveal our very latest addition to the Gaze Burvill family, the Amity Seat, with a celebratory carving dedicated to King Charles III. Amity gained many admirers who were pleased to learn that for each seat sold as part of a Special Edition of 100 seats, Gaze Burvill is donating £100 to Action Oak, with an enchanting oak leaf insignia carved into the seat back to mark this charity initiative.

In the afternoon we were joined by a mixologist from Gorilla Spirits who put our new Cocktail Cabinet through its paces, providing much needed refreshment for visitors on a hot Chelsea afternoon – including some very special VIP guests!

As we continue to celebrate our 30 year anniversary year, we showed our original and still very much favoured design, the Court Seat, and a special display of beautifully aged May Thrones which were ordered at our very first RHS Chelsea Flower show in 1994, and borrowed for the Show – visitors were astonished and delighted to discover the age of these much loved seats, and, as always, enchanted by just how comfortable they are to sit in!

In keeping with Will Williams’s pared back style, the display featured beautiful ‘Pierre Porcelain Gris’ with ‘Barnyard Rustic Cobbles’ from Artisans of Devizes, providing a beautifully natural finish.


Display Highlights


Eagle eyed visitors to Chelsea will have spotted various Gaze Burvill pieces in gardens around the show. The Savills Garden, designed by Mark Gregory was awarded a Silver Gilt medal and featured our Mead Table and Chancery Chairs in a beautifully intimate al fresco dining area, set within the grounds of an imagined country hotel.

The Gold Medal winning garden of London Square Community Garden by James Smith featured a tailored Court Swing Seat set in a tranquil planted area, with a shady spot under the canopy of a tree. A collection of Gaze Burvill furniture could also be found throughout the Spring garden hospitality area, including the Court Seat, Amity Seat and Meander.
